The Confederation of African Athletics, CAA, has included 16 Nigerians in a shortlist of 77 athletes to represent the continent at next month’s IAAF Continental Cup.

The event which would take place in Ostrava, Czech Republic from September 8 to 9 in Ostrava, will also have other athletes from other continents also on parade.

The African athletes were majorly selected on the strength of their performance at the recently held 21st African Senior Athletics Championships in Asaba, Delta State.

With Nigeria getting 16 of her athletes listed, that is the second highest behind South Africa that got 20 athletes listed.
